People always ask.

I never really have an answer.

papa say yes!

...I'm wearing a striped shirt and polka dot socks today. If I wasn't wearing jeans, it would be like 2006 indie rock was having a party with 1988 hip hop and someone forgot to invite my crotch. Think about it...

...Speaking of polka dots and 1988 hip hop: anyone remember Kwame'?...

...What's up with the U of M students rioting all the time? And like, who determines if rioting is appropriate or not? There seems to be a lack of direction. If the hockey team wins, they riot. If Talib Kweli doesn't show up, they riot. Someone needs to establish some sort of ground rules as to what constitutes a riot-worthy event. Would they riot if the U decided to stop accepting stupid white jocks from the suburbs? Or perhaps, there would be nobody left to participate in the riot?...

...Bacon seems to be at the height of its popularity these days. I mean, just google it and ye shall see. Want to see how this becomes this? Look here, and prepare to have your mind blown by bacon...

Does Richard prefer Checkers?

Art Crawl starts tonight. I got a sneak peek at stuff down at the gallery last night when I was setting up. Aw-inspiring yet again. My colleagues just keep bringing it. No keg this time around but we do have a bar set up. Matt demanded it. I have four four new paintings up. I also have an installation of sorts, which you can buy pieces of. So it's sort of an ever-changing installation. Or will be, that is, if people buy parts of it. It's called Some People Were Born To Rock-N-Roll. Please come on down and hang out with us.

Back Alley Gallery
242 East 4th St. LL#2
Lowertown, St. Paul, MN
